Autumn In Central Park
By the words of the great Billie Holiday, experiencing NYC during fall is truly a unique thing. Leaves changing colors, special city places not changing the slightest - that is what makes October a perfect time to enjoy and slide into the colder part of the year while doing great activities. And in the same way that jazz describes all the best that defines New York, it is safe to say Central Park has the same connection to the autumn season. So, why not make a list of the best activities available for you to enjoy in the following days.
Speaking of iconic things that happen during the fall season in Central Park, the fall foliage is on top of everyone's list. Every autumn season over 15,000 beautiful trees 'explode' in different colors of leaves, and that is the time when the entire Central Park area is amazingly photogenic and fairytale-like. With a well-created base of information, people who want to discover specific sorts of trees and nuance of colors can easily gain access to it. Of course, there is a list of spots where you can experience foliage.
Some of them are - The Pool, North Woods, Conservatory Garden, The Ramble, North Meadow and the Reservoir...
